What is VTone?

VTone is a gentle, nonsurgical FDA cleared technology designed to provide intravaginal electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) and neuromuscular re-education. The VTone applicator provides rehabilitation of weak pelvic floor muscles for the treatment of stress urge and mixed urinary incontinence in women.

Over time the female anatomy evolves due to multiple factors:

  • Pregnancy
  • Childbirth
  • Hormonal transformations
  • Menopause

Inevitably, the pelvic floor is negatively impacted leading to:

  • Pelvic floor weakness
  • Stress Incontinence
  • Reduction in the quality of life

Types of Urinary Incontinence

Stress Incontinence

  • Urine leaks when pressure is exerted on the bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising, lifting heavy articles

Urge Incontinence

  • A sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine
  • Often have the urge to urinate, including throughout the night
  • Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition, such as infection, or a more severe condition such as a neurologic disorder or diabetes

Overflow Incontinence

  • Frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that does not empty completely

Functional Incontinence

  • A physical or mental impairment which inhibits making it to the toilet in time (ie. due severe arthritis, you may not be able to walk quickly enough)

Mixed Incontinence

  • More than one type of urinary incontinence

VTone FAQs

VTone is powered through the Empower RF platform by InMode. The treatment is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment that helps to tone and train muscles of the pelvic floor. During a VTone treatment a two-sided tip is inserted quickly and comfortably into the vaginal canal to trigger involuntary muscle contractions. These contractions tone and tighten the pelvic floor muscles, targeting the muscle fibers that have become weakened or overstretched during pregnancy and childbirth.

VTone is recommended for any women who wish to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. At your initial consultation, Dr Sharon Li will complete an assessment to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. We recommend obtaining a GP referral, as this allows Dr Li to access information regarding your general health, past medical history and suitability for the treatment.

A consultation fee is charged after your appointment; however, your GP referral will allow our receptionists to claim your Medicare rebate for this payment. Please contact us directly on 07 3219 6868 for more information or to secure an appointment.

 

After your initial consultation, Dr Li will customise a treatment program unique for you. While a single pelvic floor treatment will likely provide mild benefits, for optimal results, we recommend 6-8 treatments of VTone over a 3 month period.
